    Strange Display Problem...

    For some reason, my monitor randomly decided to change while I was using the computer. There's now what I can only think to describe as a 'pixel shift', in which all images on the monitor seem slightly off color-wise, and pixel-wise. For example, text that was once black is now blue, some of the smaller text looks blurred. Even on my desktop icons, where the color isn't off, some pixels seem to be missing, or little points of color are not the right color for the icon. I've since restarted the comp, and nothing has changed. Everything is still running reletively normally.

    I'm not sure whether it's the monitor or the computer. I tried changing my resolution, messing with the monitor settings, all of my drivers are up to date, etc. That did nothing. Next step is to shut down the comp and check the connection to the monitor, as that's the only other thing I can think of.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Guess the graphics card does not get enough power.... PSU lose quality over
    time or you have installed some new hardware.

    Do a system restore to a point prior to the event.
    Or , reinstall graphics drivers.
